Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...exact growing conditions needed to steer the cells down the correct developmental pathway. "You need to teach the [embryonic stem cells] to change step by step, where each step has different conditions and a strict window of time," says Zhang. "Otherwise, it just won't work." To differentiate into a func...

Lack of enzyme turns fat cells into fat burners

...t mice are nowoxidizing fat, hydrolyzing (breaking down using water) fat, and passingit on to the heart and muscle because there is an increase in oxidationof fat in those organs. It also starts oxidizing glucose. In otherwords, the adipose tissue is becoming a little more oxidative and lessinvolved in th...

Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

...as the transport machinery in their neurons breaks down with age. "A person could have a predisposition to the disease, or it could just be that as time progresses, one person could by chance accumulate these blockages more than another," said Goldstein. "And randomly, some people would accumulate more th...

Elusive HIV shape change revealed; Key clue to how virus infects cells

...it the shape change; the new findings may help pin down how these compounds work and hasten their development into drugs. "The findings also will help us understand why it's so hard to make an HIV vaccine, and will help us start strategizing about new approaches to vaccine development." The studies, perf...

The secret to longevity in tubeworms

...easing its waste sulfate not up into the ocean but down into the sediments, L. luymesi stimulates the growth of sulfide-producing microbes, and ensures its own long-term survival. The sulfide this worm needs is created by a consortium of bacteria and archaea that live in the deep sea cold sediments surro...

Computers to be used to find blueprint for new influenza drug

...a better drug that could be taken by people coming down with flu to stop the disease developing. The drug would work by being chemically very similar to part of the protective coating around the cells in our throats that the flu virus first attacks when a person becomes infected. The flu virus would be d...

A group of Rockefeller University scientists who had previously identified a key gene essential for the sense of smell in fruit flies now shows that this gene's function appears to be evolutionarily conserved across very differ...

It also couldallow for production of large mol...

Research on Worms Yields Clues on Aging
